    Isn’t this a little on the tame side for someone like you?

    Actually, women (not “girls”) have been heroes in science fiction all the way back to the 1950’s, especially in Heinlein’s work.

    I took an English class in college titled “Women and Sex in Science Fiction”


    One of the best classes I ever took, if for no other reason than discovering the work of John Varley

    I like to do something different sometimes. I never conceived of Last Kiss as just being about sex. (Although it might seem like that!)

    if you’re reading early Heinlein, then “girls” is appropriate. until the early 1960’s Heinlein wrote juvenile science fiction.
    (see “Podkayne of Mars”)

    Yes, and the girl’s name will be Honor Herrington.
    or Deja Thoris.
    Or Menoly (sp?)
    Or Friday
    .
    I DO miss Podkayne, though. I even have her in Portugese, A RAPARIGA DE MARTE

    Atually, the femmes get to decide what each one of them individually wants to be called and our duty is simply to say, “Yes, ma’am.” Except to the ones who don’t want to be called ma’am.

    Men and women……working together…..as a team….thiat is the best way….
    The woman can be and is the heroine
    The man is the hero..
    One without the other is not good…
    And the old stereotyping is worse.

    Well, the Black Widow in a leather cat suit always works for me.
